It’s beginning to look a lot like winter now.
For one thing, it IS winter – the winter solstice started Wednesday morning at 4:44 a.m.
But it also snowed overnight in most of southern Saskatchewan – which gives us the hope of a white Christmas (if it doesn’t melt by Christmas day).
Environment Canada says a band of snow made its way into the province overnight, but with milder temperatures expected over the next few days, the snow really could all be gone by Christmas eve.
However, the weather office is forecasting some light flurries on Christmas eve and Christmas day – and yes, temperatures will start to get much colder than the plus-3C forecast for Thursday.
Highway Hotline is reporting snow-covered and icy sections on many of Saskatchewan highways. For example, Highway 11 to Saskatoon has snow-covered areas.
It’s best you check your route before you travel this weekend.
